Edelweiss' research report on Britannia Industries
Britannia Industries’ (Britannia) 5.6% and 0.5% YoY revenue and EBITDA growth, respectively, came in line, while 4.6% PAT spurt slightly surpassed estimates. Overall volumes grew at 2% YoY (7% YoY in Q2FY17) dragged by demonetisation (November revenue fell 10% MoM), but was ahead of category growth leading to market share (MS) gains.
Though input price inflation (up 10% YoY) continued to pinch gross margin (down 229bps YoY), it was mitigated to some extent via price hikes (YTD 5.5%). Britannia will benefit from pickup in biscuit market, rise in MS, entry in new categories and demand recovery led by good monsoon and government initiatives. Maintain ‘BUY’.
